will shill for friends / author's book reading tonight
After shilling (twice!) for a documentary about I. M. Pei by Anne Makepeace (and others) shown on PBS on March 31 (March 31, 9 PM on PBS: I M Pei documentary, March 24, shilling for I M Pei), it is time for a Manhattan Loft Guy shout out to author and friend Lauren Belfer, who is doing a reading of her new novel (out today, so this is fresh news!), A Fierce Radiance.
Tonight, June 15 near Lincoln Center, and tomorrow, June 16 in (gasp) Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Details below.
Besides being a long-time Manhattan Loft Guy friend, Belfer is the author of the NY Times bestselling City Of Light, a novel set in her home town of Buffalo at the turn of the (last) century. No kidding around: I greatly enjoyed this novel, in which Belfer delivers a real sense of time and place.
The new novel is set closer to home (for Manhattan Loft Guy, certainly, and Belfer’s adopted long-time home). Here’s one PR paragraph:
Tonight at 7:30
Barnes & Noble
Tomorrow at 7:30
686 Fulton St (at South Portland)
Come and get a book signed, if you can. Read the darn book anyway. I will.
